    They were arabic letters strung together as gibberish as far as I could tell.

    I don't think it was Farsi, either. It was frustrating. The handwriting was excellent, so that wasn't the problem. The words LOOKED right, but they were not real words.

    And dark. We are out. This season has gone in a completely different direction with the violence and just overall dark tone. It's less about life without the power being off and more about how they can write sadistic characters in and see some graphic violence. What does the new guy (Titus or whatever his name is) have to do with anything other than he is a psycho?

    I get a Lost vibe now with the lightning bugs and dead people coming back. I fully expect that they will now introduce a lot of new sci-fi mysteries that they never intend to answer. And then just say it was never about the mystery, but the journey of the characters.

    It's odd. I feel like the show has improved, but I also feel more lost than ever before. Like I didn't retain important information from the prior season, and it's making it difficult to follow the show now. I feel like I don't understand the characters' motives or relationships any more. I don't know who is bad, who is good, who likes whom, or who is against whom. I feel like I've lost the narrative thread. Once that happens, I often give up within a few episodes. And yet I feel like the writing is sharper than it had been, so I want to try to stick with it.

    Everything is realigning apparently. In the previously on segments, they showed the little device that seems to control the nanites, so I assume Rachel put it into Aaron's chest, but they haven't shown her do it. Whoever that guy was keeping his wife alive, he sure was creepy. Why would ANYONE follow him?

    Apparently it's gotten so bad that no one has bothered to start a thread for this week's ep...

    ...and apparently ratings in a key demo were barely half what they were last year...bye, bye, Revolution -- "Season 2 debut attracted less than half the young-adult viewers of last fall's premiere, and it just hit a new series low this week."

    Revolution is far from NBC's biggest problem. As sad as it is it leads a night better than any other non reality show. Once The Voice & football are gone what does NBC do?

    As long as the ratings don't drop 20% more I think Revolution sticks on the schedule because that's the territory any other scripted show seems to deliver.

    I agree, there will be several other dominoes falling before Revolution. I also agree COMPLETELY, that without The Voice and football, NBC has nothing! :eek: The boardroom over there must be in near panic mode after the latest round of ratings this fall.
